AN FRANCISCO, Not. 20. The Bout hern
Pacific depot and terry Blips at the end of
the Alameda mole, which extends far Into
the bay from th eastern ahore, were totally
destroyed by fife eerly- this morning. A
large number ,of passenger coachea were1
also burned , and It la feared that several
'Uvea have been lost.
The fire broke out from some unknown
cauae soon after the ferryboat Oakland had
reached the slip on Its last' trip from this
city. It was about 1 o'clock and the kitchen
crew of the steamer had retired to their
lodging In a small structure near the end of
the pier.
Suddenly the flames broke out, spreading
through the depot, a big building of wood
and glass. The upper works "of the Oak
land caught fire and lta captain was forced
to cut loose and. leave the. men .behind.
They might have escaped, but have not yet
been heard from.
The burning slips were Inaccessible for
fire engines from the Alameda county shore,
but two flrehoats were dispatched to the
aceae from this city and succeeded In con
fining the flames to the end of the mole.
Nothing else could be done, however, and
everything on the board extension of the
pier was soon totally dentroyed.
Train Dispatcher Walker estimates the
lor at from ' $4.10.000 to $500,000. Besides
the slips rind buildings, eight broad gauge
passenger coachea and twenty-five narrow
gauge coaohea were burned. The ferry
teamer Knclnal, which waa moored to the
mole, waa towed to a place of aafety. The
number of men missing Is ten.
The depot waa the terminal for trains to
Santa Cms - and train for Oakland and
Alameda. The depot was conatructed on
fllled-ln ground, studded by piles, and was
used a an approach for the Oakland and
Alameda trains.
The cara In use on the line are of the
most Improved pattern.
During the; last year the Southern Pacific
baa expended many thousands of dollars In
repairing the approaches to the mole and
the wharf. -.;
The ferry buildings proper covered sev
eral acres and contained the well filled of
llcea of the railroad operatives.

lion of Projected Waterway
From Chicago.
CHICAGO, Nor. 20. "New Orleans be
lieves In a waterway from Chicago to the
Gulf of Mexico and as far as possible will
assist Chlcgo la securing national aid for
such a project, declared M. K. Pandera
'of New Orleans' today t the Auditorium
Annex! j 4
Mr. 8enders', U . president, of the New
Orleans Progressive union and a represen
tative of the Morgan Steamship syndicate
and admits that he aspires to membership
on the Isthmian canal commission.
"The development of the future la In the
south and west," said Mr. Sanders. "A
waterway from Chicago to New Orleans
would be a great stride commercially and
I hope will come. There will be no oppo
sition In "congress from any of our repre
sentatives and I believe I know what I
am talking about when I aay that no state
adjoining the . Mississippi river will op
pose national assistance to the project.
"A question might arise If a twenty foot
channel waa proposed. The government
furnishes now an eight foot channel most
of the way and this ought" to be sufficient
for some time to come. Within ten or fif
teen years It maybe that ' New Orleans
would favor a twenty foot channel but the
coet of a channel .of such a depth now
Is almost prohibitory. Were the waterway
to be consummated and commerce con
tinue to Increase there would come a time
within a few year when a twenty foot
channel would be an economical necessity
and I know that New Orleans would' back
the project to Its utmost power."

opinion that the time is ripe for a sub

most convincing argument; they also pre

Kinds Danish Princess Reading; Pres
ident Hoosevelt's Books, Which
He Afterwards Perased With
Deep and Abiding; Interest.
PARIS, Nov. 20. M. Jusserand arrived
here yesterday from Copenhagen on his
first visit to Pari since bis appointment
to Washington. He cornea now lo receive
Instructions and arrange for hla departure
for Washington, where he expects to ar
rive early In the new year.
Speaking to a reporter tonight he said:
Although I have never lived In the
United States I feel fairly well acquainted
with that country, as my diploiriHtlc life
has brought me Into contact with many
Amerlrans and I" have formed many last
ing Ajnerlcnn friendships.
M. 'Jusserand said he had kept np hi
Interest In American affairs more recently
by reading American books, studying 'the
American system, and by a constant cor
respondence with a number of well known
Americans, two of whom belong to the
faculty of Columbia university.
Recognise America's Position.
He referred to the growing Importance
of America In the world's affaire and said
that throughout Europe the position of
the United Statea aa a new world power
waa everywhere recognized. He thought
this Imposed serious trials and responsi
bility on the country and pointed out that,
while the commercial development of the
Vnlted Statea waa marvelous, yet Its
Intellectual progress was keeping pace
with Its material progress. In this con
nection he cited the new universities and
a personal incident. He had received, he.
aald, from a comparatively obscure col
lege In the Interior of the United Statea a
most scholarly criticism on hla theory re
garding the origin of the manuscript of
"Vision of Piers Plowman."
M. Jusserand, when asked why Denmark
refused to sell the West Indies, said the
sentiment against , any further reduction
of the Danish dominion operated strongly
agalnBt the project, although It was at
first aupposed that a universal desire for
the sale existed.- The failure brought Its
compensations as the discussion disclosed
clearly that the Danish West Indies would
not go to any other power than the
United States.
The failure was also to some extent an
evidence of personal devotion to the king,
who shared In the sentiment against part
ing with the country' ancient possessions.
Questioned regarding the pending
Franco-American question, M. Jusserand
said he intended to devote his careful at
tention to the reciprocity treaty. which was
still pending, and said he saw no reason
why the two countries should not develop
their mutual trade by a more liberal ex
change of the products which each pro
duced exclusively. He cited American ma
chinery, raw cotton and - petroleum as
articlea having no French competition
which could form a basis of - exchange
against those French articles which had
no competition In the United State.
Volcanoca Canal Talk.'
Concerning -the Panama canal, - he aald
the question had no official status, but he
would continue the friendly efforts of M.
Cambon on behalf of the company. He de
clared : the moat . powerful . advocates, for
the Panama route were the volcanoea of
Guatemala, and Nicaragua, which kept'
speaking in tone of thunder. ' ' "
He related that on one occasion when
dining with Bret Harte at the Rabalas
club in London the American author ex
pressed regret that he was unrecognized
In France. M. Jusserand assured him that
Frenchmen were familiar with the pe
culiar cadence of western stories and
proved it by reciting the closing line of
"The Luck of Roaring Camp."
Bret Harte repaid the compliment by
saying that when he was a struggling
clerk In California he was Impressed by
the dramatic descriptive power of the
elder Duma and thereafter modeled his
style after that of the great French
The ambassador spoke of the pleasure

from Handing.
NEW YORK, Nov. 20. Mrs. Carrie Na
tion created a sensstlon at the horse
show today. Bho harangued the gathering
on the evils of overdress, attempted to
break a bottle of champagne, and was
finally ejected by the police.
She entered the garden quietly and took
a seat In the' tier, but had been there
only a few minute when she caught sight
of some member of the Vanderbilt family.
She descended to the promenade, and,
stationing herself In front of the Vander
bilt box, delivered a tirade on over
dress, m the box were Mrs. Alfred G.
Vanderbilt, Reginald Vanderbilt and Mis
Nicholson. '
"You ought to be ashamed of your
selves," screamed the saloon smasher at
them. "You ought to be ashamed to wear
such disgraceful clothes. Take them off,
take them off at once, and attire your
selves more modestly."
Mr. Vanderbilt hastily came over to
where Mrs. Nation waa atandlng wiping
her forehead. 11 whispered something In
her ear 'and pushed her away.
The outburst attracted a crowd and the
occupant of the Vanderbilt box were evi
dently much embarrassed.'
Mr. Nation then turned her attention
to other boxea, and finally started for the
cafe, where she bore down on a party
of men who were drinking wine. She
seized the bottle and, glaring at the drink
er, shouted:
"Young men, don't drink such filthy
stuff. You are going straight to hell.
Where Is the man who sells this stuff T
Show him to me and I will tell him what
I think of him."
Mra. Nation's request was speedily
granted by the audden appearance of M.
VIHe Pigue, the caterer at the garden.
"Get out of this horrible business." she
shouted at him. "You are also going to
hell and ruining the bodlea and aouls of
men. You are dragging them down with
you. . Shame on you. Shame on you!" '
The' Frenchman, however, did not see
matter In the same light, and, running
up to Mrs. Nation, reacued the bottle
which she had stolen and was brandishing
In. the air to emphasize her remarks.
Then he puahed her out of the door into
the arm of atalwart policemen, who put
her out of the building.

Check In Canal Xegotlatlona filvrs
Renewed Kncouremeit of
Other Survey.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20. The check In
the negotiations with Colombia relative to
the Panama canal, haa given great en
couragoment to the friends of th Nicara
gua project and the first evidence of re
newed activity on tbelr part wa the ap
pearanca at the State department today
of Benor Correa. Nlcaragusn minister to
Secretary Hy haa several times called
the attention of the Colombian government
when the negotiation have lagged to the
fact that under section four of the Spooner
aot, If he I unable to obtain control of tho
necessary territory in Colombia by treaty,
then he I required to obtain tuch territory
from Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
It Is now aald to be probable that to
emphasize hla repeated declarations that
the action of congress In the passage of
the Spooner amendment, did not finally
commit the United -States to the accept
ance of the Tanama route, Secretary Hay
may proceed to draw up a treaty with
Nicaragua and - Costa Rica and submit it
to the senate alohg with such a treaty
with Colombia aa be may be able to con
clude. In .this way the senate Itself might de
cide whether or not the Colombian-treaty
Is satisfactory and If It should decide In
the negative then It will have at hand the
Nlcaraguan-Costa RICan treaties an that
there will be no excuse for delay In the
canal project.
As for the Colombian negotiations, It
can be stated that th United State ha
now gone to the end of the concessions
It Is willing to make. The Colombian min
ister here has been notified of the decision
reached and Is expected to make further
reply either accepting or rejecting our last
proposition. One of the objection lodged
by ' Colombia 1 the difference over the
tenure of the United State In the canal
Prominent senators who have- been eon
suited by the state department have In
dicated their strong opposition to the ac
ceptance of 100 years leaee with provision
for renewal as sufficient to meet the pro
visions of the Spooner act. Nothing less
than "perpetual control" as set down In
the act will aatlsfy them.
The Colombians say that would be a vio
lation of tholr constitution. But a careful
reading of the Colombian constitution by
the officials here doea not aatlsfy them
that there Is any such prohibition against
alienation of territory as la reported.
Delay Is Caused by Protracted Ketco-
tlatlona mat nave ius .
Been. Completed.
WASHINGTON, " Nov. 20. Clarence W.
Mackay, president of the Commercial' Pa
clfls Cable company, George O. Ward, vice
president, and William W. ' Cook, general
counsel for the company, had tn Interview
today with the attorney general with re
spect, to the condition prescribed by Presi
dent Roosevelt .for constructing a Pacific
These ' conditions were ' approved by the
president in July last, since which time
the Pacific Cable company has not officially
notified, the government aa to its intention
or willingness to accept them.
Today, however, Mr. Mackay explained
to the attorney general that the delay was
caused by protracted negotiations, which
have only been brought to . a conclusion
within tho laat few days, to secur a land
ing place in China to comply with the
president' condition that an Independent
American Una should be constructed from
Manila to Hong Kong, thus giving an all
American through Hoe to the Asiatic con
tinent. It was thla condition that wa supposed
to be the one that the cable company would
be unwilling or unable to comply with. It
now announcea lta ability and Intention to
construct a line from Manila to Shanghai
a distance of about 1,200 miles, and to have
the same completed within a year.
Owing to the claim by the Pacific cable
people that, as they read one of the other
conditions, it will practically prevent tne
necessary relations with extating lines In
China to secure the transmission of Amer
ican messages to interior points, that pro
vision Is being recast to obviate misunder
standings and will be submitted to the
preatdent in a modified form in a few daya.

suffering and preserved peace and order
In too affected region

that aurh outrages could not be perpe
